If you are considering buying or investing in a franchise, we offer a fixed fee franchise agreement review service. While many franchisors will be reluctant to accept changes to the franchise agreement, it is vital that a new franchise owner has a clear understanding of the scope of legal obligations that will apply when a franchise agreement is signed. Unlike an employment contract, a franchise agreement is likely to require the franchisee to commit to a minimum initial term on average of 5 years.
Our experienced team of franchise lawyers will prepare a detailed report to guide you through the implications of the franchise agreement before you commit to the investment.
We provide a fixed fee Franchise Agreement Review Service which includes:-
- A review of the Franchise Agreement; and
- Provision of a comprehensive written report outlining principal terms and highlighting any unusual or onerous provisions
If you would like to instruct us to review a franchise agreement:
- Send us a copy of the franchise agreement to be reviewed, together with any relevant additional documentation relating to the franchise agreement.
- Ask us any specific questions or comments you would like us to deal with in our report.
- Provide us with your contact details (email, home address and telephone number).
- Payment of the fixed fee of £600 plus VAT (£720 inclusive of VAT). We will issue an invoice for £720 on completion of the report.
We aim to send you the completed report within 5 to 7 working days from the date of receipt of the agreement and fixed fee payment.
Recent Client Testimonials:
“I recently enlisted the services of Jane Masih to advise me on a franchise agreement I was considering entering into. The opinion I received was both timely, comprehensive and allowed me to go back to the Franchisor with real, added value comments. I would advise anyone seeking to enter such an agreement to get it thoroughly checked out and without question, Jane exceeded our expectations on this front. I will most definitely seek Jane’s opinion on legal matters arising as the business develops.”
“I engaged Jane Masih of Owen White to review a complex franchise agreement prior to the purchase of a business to business franchise. Being new to the world of franchising; I was unaware of the contractual obligations of such agreements, and was extremely thankful for the detailed and thorough advice I received from Jane. The advice enabled me to make an informed decision on whether to go ahead with the purchase by detailing ongoing obligations (royalties, marketing budgets, etc), and the likely implications of terminating the agreement. I would not hesitate to recommend Jane Masih for legal counsel relating to contracts of this type. ”
